We recently headed out to find the Castle Playground in Bitburg, Germany. It was actually quite easy to find and is a great park! It has areas for smaller kids and larger kids. We went on a Thursday around noon and there were only 2 boys there sitting on a bench talking, we had the whole park to ourselves.
If your driving from Spangdahlem on the B50 when you get to the first roundabout in Bitburg you will take the first exit (towards the hospital). Drive a bit (maybe 1k) and you’ll turn onto Schleifmuehle on the left, go down to Peter-Wallenborn-Strasse and you’ll see a sign designating it a farm/bike path. Just past this sign you’ll see the wooden fences where a few cars can park. In the pic above you can see the fence on the right just past the trees.
Make sure to look for the fence as the park is a bit back from it and I accidentally passed it and had to turn around. You can see the park just over the fence in the background.
The whimsical playground is designed to give the appearance of a castle with wooden animals and all.
These cute wooden sheep greet you as you walk up to the park.
There is an area for smaller kids. There is a hammock, a bridge, small slide, and wooden animals & people to explore. The cat made me chuckle 🙂
There is also some sand features as well where they can haul sand up in buckets and send it down the troughs.
I love the wooden figures scattered throughout the park! I mean don’t ya just love this pig?!
The sheep crack me up as well, I mean look at their eyes! LOL!!
As well as an area for larger kids with rock climbing, bridges, and a long slide.
The slide on the larger park is much longer, there is a rope bridge, a seesaw and some fun sheep on springs.
Several benches spread around the park as well, could be a great to take a picnic with you.
I also spotted a basketball hoop (which is something we don’t often see off base) as well as a ping pong table. Lots of activities for kids of all ages at this park.
The flowers and plants were also labeled although I think they may have been in German so make sure to have your WordLens app if you want to read them.
Bea’s favorite part was the zip and she had a blast riding it.
Here she is in action.
Great park in the local area! It will entertain kids of all ages for quite awhile. Lots to see, do, and explore here. A must see if your looking for a fun park for the kids. Also note there are no bathrooms around so make sure to take a potty break before you stop by.
